Whenever I update the driver you’ll automatically get the update pushed to your hub. That’s supposed to happen within 12 hours, but it seems to usually be pretty quick. There’s also a way to force the update to your hub if you install the CLI on a computer.
If you’re not happy with the idea of automatic updates, you’re also welcome to download the source code and package your own version of the driver.
Thank you @philh30 for the driver i am very appreciative of it! I have tested it on one of my fans and so far its running great. I just had one question, how do i use voice assistant to turn on/off the fan light? I’m using google assistant and i can get fan commands to work i just can’t figure out how to control the light.
The way ST originally handled multicomponent devices under Edge doesn’t expose them to connected services. They’ve now started implementing a child feature similar to the way they worked in the DTH environment but it’s not clear if it’s fully out yet. In the meantime, you can create a virtual switch and routine(s) to sync it with the light, or add scenes and call those via Google Assistant.
I was wondering about that - I’m not sure whether it’s possible to create a routine that syncs dimmer levels between two switches. Have you tried “sync switch” in the new Smart Lighting? I just tried a test but I’m not home so I can’t tell whether the apparent lack of responsiveness is real or just slow updates to my app.
It’s in the new Smart Lighting app; I don’t think it was set up the same way in the old version. To install it you have to add routine, switch to the “discover” tab, and scroll all the way down (if you’re in a region where it’s enabled).
